Homework Help: Math - Derivatives

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 at 3:49pm.

I find it difficult to take the derivative of something that has a constant base with a variable as an exponent...and simplify it... PLEASE HELP ME!

f(x) = e^(x^(-1))

f'(x) = -1(e^(x^(-2))e^(x^(-1))

f'(x) = -e^(x^(-2))e^(x^(-1))

?????

and... f(x) = 3^x

f'(x) = 3^x
